New for 2024!  Curated and moderated by BASE-UK & Direct Driller Magazine, the Direct Driller @Cereals stage will help large-scale arable farmers make the most of SFI with practical, cost-effective, hands-on advice.  Themed Regenerating your farm profit, the Direct Driller @Cereals stage will host two full days of informative seminars presented by regenerative farmers and industry experts.  In addition to the conference programme, Direct Driller @Cereals will host a full exhibition, cover crop plots and a drill demonstration area.

  1. Direct Driller @Cereals

    What SFI options are you claiming? SAM1, HRW3, AHL1, AHL2, AB1, AB8 and others all work in combination with regen ag farming. What’s better than getting paid once? Getting paid twice and improving your soils at the same time. But what are the best combinations for different soils types and farms?

  2. Direct Driller @Cereals

    Including livestock in the rotation can bring multiple advantages, including improving soil health and weed management. The aim is to increase the productivity of arable fields, particularly those identified as underperforming.

    By working with other farming enterprises, income streams can be diversified, and the risks of production spread, leading to mutual benefits for both parties.

  3. Direct Driller @Cereals

    Many say that the more you embrace regen ag then the less machinery you need. With the new SFI requirements, things like toppers are becoming as essential as the direct drills themselves, but what are the easy wins? To decrease your fuel spend each year and release the capital expenditure on machinery.

    Opened by a welcome address from Minister Spencer, join us for lunch and network, quiz and connect with our expert speakers.  Pick a table/ topic that suits you and get all your questions answered.

  5. Direct Driller @Cereals
    Firstly, there are cover crops and then there are cover crops! With so many different mixes and so many different options, cheap mixes might meet the needs of a scheme, but if you want to double the benefit of better rooting, soils and biomass, then spending a bit more on the right mix for your farm will see an increased benefit!
  6. Direct Driller @Cereals

    SAM1 is paying farmers to better understand their soils and have a plan, but do you know how the various indices interact and how getting them right leads to increased yield? We look into how the right nutrition leads to higher profits and better soil.

  7. Direct Driller @Cereals
    This seminar will review the IPM methods growers have at their disposal, taking into account the effectiveness of control, the economic importance of the pest, and aspects related to practicality of implementation.  From methodology to restrictions, the seminar will cover your IPM strategy as it relates to SFI.

    Take this time at the end of the day to network and relax with the Direct Driller @Cereals speakers, attendees and sponsors.
